Microdermabrasion is a form of mechanical machine exfoliation, and originated in Europe. Some of the first machines entered the U.S. market around 1995.

Microdermabrasion Benefits– Microdermabrasion can be used to diminish the following conditions: sun damage, pigmentation, open and closed comedones, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and coarsely textured skin. The vacuum mechanism stimulates cell metabolism.

Differences Between Chemical and Mechanical Exfoliation The difference between AHA peels and microdermabrasion is that peels are chemical agents that break down the intercellular glue, and penetrate into the epidermis. Therefore, they are chemically exfoliating the surface skin. The peel product and its penetration into the skin has many benefits. Microdermabrasion is a mechanical method of exfoliation. It exfoliates the epidermis more effectively than a 30 percent peel does, but the benefits of the chemical products are not produced. For example, acids penetrate into the skin and stimulate cell mitosis and the cell turnover rate more than microdermabrasion. The vacuum used in microdermabrasion does stimulate cell metabolism and circulation. Generally, you can think of microdermabrasion as a more effective tool for surface exfoliation and AHA peels as more effective below the surface. They work very well in combination for the appropriate skin types.
